Odds & Ends…

I’m taking a short break… will post again on 19 December. From time to time, you’ll find me on Facebook/Twitter and over at the IWSG site. I’ll also be doing lots of writing, and lurking around at your blogs when I have some time…

Thank you to everybody who visited my blog and played along with the whacky Words. I had LOADS of fun reading your comments! The last whacky word was Kakidrosis. The real meaning of the word is –  a secretion of sweat of a disagreeable odor. http://www.definitions.net/definition/kakidrosis

The definition that had me laughing out loud was posted by Alex J. Cavanaugh, who wrote this: a condition that results from too much exposure to the Kardashians. My response: with the flood of Kardashian reality shows, kakidrosis should be reaching pandemic proportions… LOL

Whacky words will continue next year!

I’m almost up to date with my Goodreads challenge.

2014 Reading ChallengeYou have read 32 of 35 books

    I love it when you lurk. You do it so well. Have a great holiday. Eat a lot and tell us all about it.

    And you’ve read 32 Books! I have to enter that challenge one of these years. I need a swift kick in the kestrel.
